    I'm sorry to hear of Dennis passing. We work together in Peoria, Ill. it was sad time because we where away from our families, it was good time, because we were working with Dennis, Slim Grims, Mike Tongue ,Jan Eggum and many others. After that we ended up at Byron.

    I am very sorry to read of the loss of, Mr. Eads. With his accomplishments, and dedications, both in his professional life and personal one, he was an amazing man! I won't pretend to know what you're going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love, is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort. One Scripture that gives me hope is John 5:28, 29 which says, " Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out ." I hope that this verse will also comfort you and, I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved husband, father, grandpa and friend. Sincerely, Meryl, -
